To climb in national rankings and best serve Florida’s residents and people throughout the nation, UF must invest in the men and women whose research, service and teaching shape the future of things that matter to you.

Investing in knowledge is the cornerstone of UF PREEMINENCE, the university’s bold plan to rise into the TOP 10 of all public universities.

The ExxonMobil Gator Alumni Faculty Endowment is a clear example of this taking place within Chemical Engineering.

The ChemE Endowment is currently supporting a term Professorship for Dr. Fan Ren. Dr. Ren’s research interests are in the area of semiconductor materials & devices, specifically processing techniques for high speed compound semiconductor electronic devices such as high electron mobility transistors (HEMTs), heterojunction bipolar transistors (HBTs) and metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistors (MOSFETs). Dr. Ren is a Distinguished Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering, and is a Fellow of the Materials Research Society, IEEE, APS, and SPIE.

Endowments give professors and researchers, like Dr. Ren, the tools they need to enhance knowledge, shepherd discoveries and serve communities.

UF professors and researchers have a reputation for doing the extraordinary. Endowments provide stable funding streams that can be used for special studies, lab equipment, graduate assistantships and other purposes to enhance their work.

Making a gift in support of the ExxonMobil Gator Alumni Faculty Endowment will allow the endowment principle to grow, which will provide increased funding for the professor holding the endowment.

Consider making a gift today—an investment in
people, knowledge and discovery within Chemical Engineering!
